We gave it a C+

When it sticks to the details (obsessive male grooming, business card envy, the importance of scoring a ”res” at the hottest boîte), American Psycho, based on Bret Easton Ellis’ 1991 novel, is an apt, often funny satire of ’80s materialism. But that satire veers disturbingly off target with its equation of yuppie heartlessness with misogynistic serial killing. C+
